Wanted to drop a line and let the FRC community know that we’re launching a new sensor product for 2020!
We’ve been working on hollow bore sensor concepts for about three years. We finally found a form-factor and technology that we think is a great fit for FRC.
This particular version of our sensor was conceived for swerve steering feedback but works in all kinds of applications.
It is thin, easy to mount and the large magnet bore leaves a lot of room for the designer to integrate as they see fit.
The magnet can be sensed from either side of the board as well!
This class of sensor is designed to compete with and/or replace a US Digital MA3. It generates a 3.3v or 5v analog output so you can use it just like a potentiometer.
It plugs directly into an SRX and can be used just like a CTRE Mag Encoder for closed-loop control.
The magnet is made from a durable polymer material. It is designed to be glued in place by the user.
We’re in production now and plan to have these ready in November.
